Review

Setting: Regency England
Sensuality Rating: 7

Relentlessly pursued by match-making mamas and their charges, Simon Bassett, the handsome Duke of Hastings, has grown tired of the societal chase. Tired too is the lovely Daphne Bridgerton, whose matrimonially minded mother is set on finding her daughter the perfect husband. Neither Simon nor Daphne is happy with this annoying state of affairs and both would give anything for a little peace and quiet. Their mutual wish for a respite from the ton''s marriage mart leads to a pretend engagement--a scheme that is threatened with exposure by Daphne''s suspicious older brother, who happens to know Simon''s way with women very well. The two never anticipated that a mutual attraction would lead to the very thing they set out to avoid--a wedding. But Simon fears that his painful past may keep him from being able to truly love anyone. And though Daphne cares for him deeply, she won''t settle for anything less than his heart.

The Duke and I is rich with author Julia Quinn''s trademark humor and engaging dialogue. Beneath the Regency charm of this novel, however, dwells an insightful exploration of the impact of childhood trauma and the healing power of love. Quinn just keeps getting better and better, a fact that''s sure to delight readers. --Lois Faye Dyer

Short Desription

Simon Basset, the irresistible Duke of Hastings, has hatched a plan to keep himself free from the town''s marriage-minded society mothers. He pretends to be engaged to the lovely Daphne Bridgerton. After all, it isn''t as if the brooding rogue has any real plans to marry--though there is something about the alluring Miss Bridgerton that sets Simon''s heart beating a bit faster. And as for Daphne, surely the clever debutante will attract some very worthy suitors now that is seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, she soon forgets that their courtship is a complete sham. And now she has to do the impossible and keep herself from losing her heart and soul completely to the handsome hell-raiser who has sworn off marriage forever!
